under what condtions is a hypothesis supported

  • biology -

    I'm not sure what you mean. Are you asking what makes a good or valid hypothesis?

    (in that case:

    " * Testability (or falsifiability)
    * Simplicity (as in the application of "Occam's Razor", discouraging the postulation of excessive numbers of entities)
    * Scope - the apparent application of the hypothesis to multiple cases of phenomena
    * Fruitfulness - the prospect that a hypothesis may explain further phenomena in the future
    * Conservatism - the degree of "fit" with existing recognised knowledge-systems"

    --Wikipedia's "Hypothesis")

    Otherwise, can you elaborate?
